Jeanne Ruddy Dance Legacy Event
Thursday February 20, 2014
Join choreographer Jeanne Ruddy and filmmakers Rodney Whitenberg & Carmella Vassor for a special presentation on archiving dance on film. In this special evening, they will share their experience of preserving ten pieces of the reportory of the former Jeanne Ruddy Dance Company. Hear about their preparations for filming, their use of camera views and narration to capture the essence of a movement phrase or moment in time, and their approach to editing. Excerpts of the archival videos will be showcased, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.
